Sunday Silliness: Ponies. Ponies Everywhere (Know Your Meme 101 - Bronies Edition)

I love the internet.  And when a new meme comes out, I can't wait to incorporate it into my normal net-mongering.

However, I'm still a little confused by this one.

Ponies.

A new My Little Pony cartoon launched last year, and a slew of Bronies have taken the cartoon and tainted it with the awesomeness of the interwebz.

I watched a few episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, to see if I could understand the phenomenon.  While mildly entertaining, I don't know if it warrants popularity for the 20-30 male demographic.

But who am I to argue?

I was overwhelmed with rainbows and cute.  There was a lot of quirky humor infused into the cartoon, but come on.

I'm a child of the 80's, and my little ponies were for girls.

I guess the ponies of the 21st century are more for everyone?

I did enjoy the fact there were girly ponies, androgynous ponies, and a couple 'butch' ponies, even though all were female.  It's not just about fitting into a predetermined box.  Ponies come in all colors, sizes, and orientations.

Even though I have yet to see some hot, steamy 'pony on pony' action, I have a feeling Applejack and Rainbow Dash are getting it on.  They look TOTALLY into each other...

...wait...

...am I being sucked in?

...no no.... I'm too manly to be watching ponies...

To amuse and educate, here are a few pony memes found on the internets.  Enjoy!

Xibit should be proud of this one...

CSI: Equestria -- YEEAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!



A meme about memes?  Yo dawg...



Hakuna Matata... bitches...
So there you have it.  What do you think about the ponies?  Are you one of the bronies?

What say you?

Nope, can't say that I am.

But "I'm gonna love and tolerate the shit outta you" is going to be my new life mantra.

According to Jewels said...

I watch My Little Ponies with the little girl I nanny for all the time. It is nowhere as good as the show from the 80's and the look of the new toys sucks compared to the old ones but I rarely take little kid shows to a perverted place.

Shit, I cannot believe I said (typed) that with a straight face. Apple Jack is a total lesbian and Rainbow Dash is as well--you totally called it!

I don't have Pony mania but if she is going to watch a show I'd rather it be that than Little Einsteins or some other highly annoying show because I swear if I have to hear the theme song to Dora The Explorer one more time somebody may die!

I saw a few episodes to see if it was a big deal. Still don't get it.

Orang3 said...

The Reckmonster said...

The only thing more annoying than My Little Pony is the fucking jackass jingle in their commercials...it's the kind of jingle that sticks in your head like stank on shit.

Mollie said...

This post could've been about 20% cooler.

Thank, Q said...

Can't stand them and wish they never would have left the '80's. Like the Power Rangers and Powder Puff Girls, they just irk me.

Lady Estrogen said...

The only My Little Pony I had was velvety, not smooth - sooo....

the Tsaritsa said...

I have to admit, they're pretty hilarious. I haven't seen the meme before this post, but it's cute. I loved My Little Pony when I was a kid.

Zombie said...

Okay, you have convinced me... I shall become a Bronie...

Dan said...

I love that show. It is decent, if you can stomach the girlieness of it.

Zertech said...

I am a hardcore brony to the bone, I embrace my inner child unlike some of you who can't even stand to give it a chance. In my mind, no one willing to at least try it, will never be worthy of Equestria and it's eternal love and tolerance.

I just love the show. Im sorry I know it is so wrong to watch but I cannot look away. I mean the show Is just danm Why did lauren faust have to create the show. Still its the last good cartoon out there. Better than adventure time or the transformers of today.
